A Stonetrip Away

Australian hard rock band Stonetrip has a self-titled EP out now, via Golden Robot Records, through all digital music platforms, and they’ve just released the track ‘My Angel‘ from it for radio play.

Following an overwhelming response to their debut live appearance in 2019, Melbourne hard rock band Stonetrip established a dedicated local fanbase and a reputation for high-octane, energetic live performances.

Then, despite the difficult year that was 2020, the band used the downtime to hit the studio, the band worked with Australian producer and engineer Ricki Rae of Lighthill Sound Recording Studio to produce the first run of tracks for their forthcoming debut EP and album.

Tracks featured on the Stonetrip EP are ‘Sideways’, ‘Runaway’, ‘Nightmare’, ‘My Angel‘ and ‘Wild Hearted Son’.

You can watch the video for ‘My Angel’ here at RAMzine – It follows previous arena rock influenced singles ‘Runaway’ and ‘Nightmare’.

‘Nightmare’ is about the reality of suffering silently for too long. Where one’s overindulgent urges catch up with your uncontrollable need for sex, drugs & rock ‘n’ roll, and them being continually consumed to a blur. The solution feels is too hard to deal with, yet you keep fighting yourself every day for the cure. You return to sleep, waking to do it all over again, but it’s a nightmare.

Stonetrip produce a groove-laden modern rock sound mixed with classic rock sensibilities. Previously released single ‘Runaway’ ran in a similar thematic vein to ‘Nightmare’; it was a song about entrapment, and the feeling unable to escape; with nowhere to go with your head constantly spinning within a relationship of emotional torment.

You can still get ‘Nightmare’ here and ‘Runaway here.
